  • good morning good morning guys from rainy wet and windy Vancouver Island

  • here in Comox I guess we are checking out of our Airbnb bright and early and

  • today we are continuing to our final destination

  • we are heading down to Victoria for two days

  • yes exciting we're basically trading in the wilderness and the small communities

  • for the we're gonna be seeing the two biggest cities today we're driving by Nanaimo and then our final destination is Victoria which is the biggest city on

  • the island yeah and we've got my dad in the driver's seat he's gonna get us

  • there I'm gonna go there but it is raining all night and I'm very winded

  • today yeah a lot of wind so well guys it's not gonna get any better

  • unfortunately I don't think I was checking like Nanaimo and a few other

  • places it looks like it's gonna be rain all day but even with that in mind we're

  • gonna be making a few stops probably visiting a couple places along

  • the coast and of course eating Nanaimo bars to choose ourselves up about the

  • weather will play try the traditional one and then we're gonna try some

  • contemporary twists on it we found one nanaimo bar that had maple bacon and also dulce de

  • leche fat restaurants open with bacon I mean okay we're in Canada but that's

  • overdoing it no it's overkill with maple and all of that that's right I know on

  • our way we're on our way anyways yeah we got a long day of driving we are heading

  • south we're basically right now in Comox we're midway up the island and we're

  • heading to the far south of the island so a busy day so guys our first stop of

  • the day was that Fanny Bay oh my gosh it's still raining really hard it's

  • super windy so what I did was I just walked out basically on this tiny little

  • trail that led out to the coast it's just like rough rough waters wind

  • rain not a soul in sight and yeah so that's basically our first stop we're

  • just back in the car and now we're going to be driving on the way to Nanaimo so

  • we have made our well I'm calling this our first stop of the day P first

  • official stop one was Fanny Bay and it was so windy and so rainy and Fanny Bay

  • is so small that we really didn't see much I'm the only one at stormy waters

  • yeah that's all that's all it was so now we're at Arbutus Grove Provincial Park our beautiful park yep

  • we've come to see the Arbutus it's known as at Adonis in Spanish and we saw lots

  • of those when we were in Patagonia yeah but Google Maps kind of led us astray

  • and then we got here and there was a group of German tourists who are also

  • kind of lost and they're looking for the Arbutus yeah so we don't know if we're

  • in the right place we do see two there's two beautiful orange trees the two

  • beautiful ones but there should be more yeah look that might go into the woods a

  • bit or that might also be the dead end too

  • well we kind of found a few trees in the forest I did for your viewing pleasure

  • they're like a different variety from the same tree that we have in Argentina

  • it's not the same one yeah like it still has that red bark is a

  • different tree in order to access there's no trail in the forest variety I

  • think we're gonna have lunch and then try a different access point this is

  • obviously not and it looks like we kind of just walked through someone's

  • backyard even though we didn't but but we are snacking at least I am on some

  • blackberries these are nice this is bear food

  • so we've arrived in the city of Nanaimo and that means that it's time to eat a

  • Nanaimo bar not just any here a word starting with a fancy one so first let

  • me tell you what the classic Nanaimo bar should have so this is a Canadian

  • dessert and there is no baking involved it has three layers the bottom layer

  • typically has wafer and a coconut crumb base then you have your custard with

  • butter icing and chocolate ganache on top this one instead of putting coconut

  • into it they've put crushed pretzels and then the custard also has dulce de leche

  • mixed in and then on top it's a white chocolate instead of a dark chocolate

  • and it has bacon bits so I feel like it's extra Canadian with the bacon how

  • do you feel about eating a dessert with bacon my dad feels a little bit like

  • it's supposed to be a sweet it's got dulce de leche does the Argentinian

  • typical caramel yeah the heck you're gonna put bacon up here yeah I think

  • they screwed up with this one I don't know I'm gonna try you know there's some

  • places that do donuts with bacon on top so it's it's kind of a trend

  • apparently it's meant to be delicious all right why don't you guys take your

  • first bite don't take my bite I think it's really good and I like the bacon I

  • have to say just a little bit of added saltiness after eating one of these but

  • you have to walk at least 25 kilometers bring it down it's heavy heavy yeah

  • thanks good but he's heavy well thanks to what this is called smoking George's

  • smoking George's and yeah they're really friendly staff inside they also

  • specialize in I think pulled pork sandwiches yeah if we hadn't had lunch

  • already they probably wouldn't go something

  • savory too and I think we're gonna hit up one more place Sam had mentioned Reds

  • bakery they also do Nanaimo bars and they have classic bars but also

  • contemporary Bart bars with a bit of a twist yeah we will show you a classic

  • and we're also gonna won't be our last Nanaimo bar no we're obviously gonna

  • save some of it the whole bar angle by how much were the early three or two or

  • three bucks each hand over my car okay I thought I'd noticed three seventy-five

  • but for that side okay where are we guys we can only be in one place we're at the

  • world's largest hockey stick here and Duncan and this thing is gigantic I mean

  • look at it look look at it look at how small those

  • little cards look next to it and you said you played hockey here yeah I

  • played hockey here before and they already had this this is like a famous

  • landmark in the city to see the biggest park apparel ventures - in the old days

  • with the puck there they all lost their I called the hockey so I remember oh

  • yeah I first came to Canada all the hockey players and all the kids in the

  • streets a lot of them didn't have any more on teeth theses are where this is

  • no wear helmets nothing they didn't have protectors either and they didn't have

  • the mouth guards they didn't have the visor is no helmet it was wild it was

  • wild man but the goalies apparently they had fractures in their faces and the jaw

  • and yeah after each game that was teaching them up like oh yeah yeah and

  • they did there was no knowledge of concussions back then so is this like

  • you're gonna puck to the head go back home play

  • yeah there's fighting right fighting I think when we came here to play our team

  • ended up fighting so it's kind of funny but anyways the biggest hockey stick

  • guys if you come to if you're driving the say between Victoria Nanaimo

  • stop here for a photo it's pretty cool hello Victoria

  • we made it oh my gosh what a long day of driving in the rain and wind oh my I

  • think we had Sun for 15 minutes yeah and we ended up making

  • fewer stops because we had planned a few hikes and provincial parks but it was

  • just pouring rain like there was no way we could be outside it's not like it was

  • sprinkling like it was just a torrential downpour and it just yeah it's the kind

  • of it's the kind of weather that's not pleasant for being out yes so we checked

  • into our Airbnb a little bit early and now we are preparing dinner it's almost

  • five o'clock what's on the menu today we got pepper beef burgers Oh pepper beef

  • burgers I don't know what it took so long that would be fun pepper corn beef

  • burgers yeah and then we're gonna work boiling some potatoes which we plan and

  • which we plan to pan roast yellow and we've got BC wine yeah Okanagan I should

  • mention well we were in an I vote we also stopped at Reds bakery another

  • really famous place for a Nanaimo bars and we picked up two kinds for yes the

  • classic one and then another one with peanut butter yeah yeah we're gonna be

  • trying both of those I don't make it three and I'm a bar one day I have to

  • say the first one was really good the moment was adolescent bacon me Wow and

  • sea salt I would eat that again for sure yeah I mean it's super decadent but so

  • tasty anyways we'll sit down with wine and food soon hmm

  • dinner is served dinner is served soif this is a

  • delicious meal prepared by Audrey's dad thank you thank you we've got a

  • peppercorn steamed with cheese humbug uh amber gasps hmm and we also

  • have a pan-roasted potatoes olive oil a little bit fried yeah you got the wine

  • another wine mmm it's pretty decent it's uh it's from its local wine throw what I

  • mean by locals from the province of British Columbia

  • it's from the Okanagan Valley in BC the most famous area and the province for

  • for growing wine and we got a Cabernet Merlot from 2016 5 vineyards by Mission

  • Hill mm-hmm yeah it's a decent table wine it's nothing no it's for everyday

  • it's a wine that you can have with your meals no problem whatsoever with this

  • wine it's not the same category is the 25 year old Spanish well no like I

  • always say that this this area in Canada they're shed beginning you know it's not

  • that they have a centuries of experience to doing wine it's not like other

  • countries that you have five six seven eight hundred years it's a new industry

  • you know and they are doing pretty good and also considering that here they have

  • to deal with a lot of problems are the climate they know they keep improving

  • year after year after year so yeah they came up with a really good wine here

  • yeah it's it's a it's a nice emerging industry here in Canada and if you have

  • a chance to try the Canadians do so because every province sells their own

  • unique wines yeah yeah and so the food's good and what we're gonna do is have

  • nama bars in a bit steak and for that

  • all right the third time this is their time we've already dug into the Nanaimo

  • bars Red's bakery mm-hmm my dad's halfway done his but what do you guys

  • think opinion we've got a classic and a peanut butter peanut butter one now this

  • one is peanut butter yeah you can really taste the peanut butter the creamy

  • peanut butter the center here it's a lot of butter when you have it in your mouth

  • it feels like you have a little small piece of butter that is melting rapidly

  • in your in your mouth you know I mean it's a good dessert but you need a you

  • need to have a specific palette for it like maybe people that were grew up here

  • eating these since they were small yeah like me I like it yeah they will go

  • crazy for it but for the ones that were showing it for the first time I brought

  • up in Latin America like us we kind of need something a little bit more I don't

  • know you know this is the typical North American dessert it kind of the United

  • States you know that a lot of people will find them beautiful-looking when

  • you you see them from outside but then you need a you need to have a special

  • palate for it you know like I mean it's not your average dessert I think you

  • prefer baked goods like cakes and pies and tarts things like that and this is

  • just like a refrigerated sugary dessert okay no but it's good but and if you

  • have to choose your favorite out of the three Nanaimo bars you've had today I'll

  • think I'll go with the peanut butter one peanut butter one you know what the

  • peanut butter one reminds me of a Reese's Peanut water

  • I don't hide my under yeah I'll go then a better one and taking into account

  • that I do not like peanut butter okay I very seldom eat that because I mean it

  • is like a paste of a peanut you know miyamura dulce de leche type you know I

  • think the one with the peanut butter is a little bit softer in taste no you ask

  • them to try it let's see were full-blown Canadian here yeah he grew up eating

  • these I did he grew up in it is this is a Vancouver Island food regional

  • Vancouver Island food so a little bit of coffee first yeah I'm gonna try the

  • classic and guys something to remember about this keep it refrigerated oh yeah

  • it starts to melt otherwise like the butter cream it just starts to oh yeah

  • dissolve I thought oh my gosh good quality thank you definitely the closet

  • that's the kind of I mean I was most used to have any on the island mmm-hmm

  • yeah my mom would make it wouldn't eat this all the time but like it's

  • definitely served a couple times a year you know peanut butter but you are the

  • peanut butter fan peanut butter monster mmm yes awesome

  • peanut butter for the win for sure so if you had to choose your favorite out of

  • all three no yes I actually really like the the other experimental one yeah I

  • would choose the first one we had but I would swap the pretzels yeah in the

  • coconut but I also I also like the classic one just cuz it's a familiar

  • taste from my childhood so I mean like all three of em good yeah I don't think

  • I've ever had three different when Milo bars in the same day so it's breaking a

  • new record here yeah just we made the most of a rainy day tomorrow guys the
